On Aug. 24, the ACC Charlotte Chapter enjoyed nothing but extravagance at The eXtravaganza Depot for its ninth annual sold-out Casino Night Fundraiser. ACC Charlotte had over 200 members in attendance, and in lieu of admission, members brought canned donations for the Second Harvest Food Bank, totaling 1,045 pounds of food.

The evening also honored and recognized two important charities in the community: Charlotte Family Housing and Race Matters for Juvenile Justice. Members were given 50,000 in “funny money” to play thrilling casino games, like blackjack, poker, roulette, and craps, as well as enjoy a delicious dinner and drinks.

At the end of the evening, great prizes were given out thanks to the hard work of the chapter’s Social Committee soliciting donations from restaurants and other businesses. ACC Charlotte extends a big thank you to its events sponsors: HaystackID, Onit, and The Partners Group | Legalpeople.
